Aetna’s (NYSE: AET)
Florida Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug (MAPD) HMO plan has been
awarded 4.5 stars by CMS for the 2019 Star Ratings.
CMS uses a five-star rating system to help Medicare beneficiaries and
their families compare Medicare Advantage and prescription drug plans.
The Star Ratings measure plans on various dimensions of performance and
“Our strong Star Ratings demonstrate our commitment to provide value and
access to quality care for Medicare beneficiaries across Florida,” said
Richard Weiss, market president of Aetna’s Florida business. “We are
focused on taking the complexity out of health care and working closely
with doctors to enhance care coordination and patient satisfaction. Our
Medicare plans are created with an emphasis on the member experience and
helping beneficiaries get the most out of their benefits.”
Medicare Advantage plans are rated on how well they perform in five
different categories: staying healthy, managing chronic (long-term)
conditions, member experience with the health plan, member complaints,
and health plan customer service. Medicare Advantage and Medicare
prescription drug plans are also rated on how well they perform in four
additional categories: drug plan customer service, member complaints,
member experience with drug plan and drug safety.
Aetna Medicare offers this highly rated HMO plan in the following
Florida counties: Broward, Charlotte, Citrus, Clay, Collier, Duval,
Hernando, Highlands, Hillsborough, Lake, Lee, Manatee, Marion, Martin,
Miami-Dade, Orange, Osceola, Palm Beach, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Saint
